Thinking About Plastic Surgery After Bariatric Surgery?

Are you considering plastic surgery after your bariatric procedure? We sat down with two experts in the plastic surgery field Dr. Gavin Dry, MD and his wife, Melissa Dry, Surgical RN, and answer all of your plastic surgery questions! Many of us undergo plastic surgery after our weight loss to tackle our extra skin but there are quite a few factors that go into making the decision to have a plastic surgery procedure and then recovering from that procedure! We want to know:

  • Why would our plastic surgery experience and procedures be different from non-bariatric patients?

  • When is the right time to undergo plastic surgery?

  • How do we find a surgeon that specializes in bariatric plastic surgery?

  • What are the most common procedures and what do they do?

  • Will plastic surgery make me look perfect?

  • How can I set myself up for success before and after plastic surgery?

  • What will recovery be like?

  • What do we need to be sure we ask at our consultations?
